Our pre-booked table was ready on arrival. Our welcome was warm and friendly. Menu choice and flexibility was outstanding. The Gin menu was thrilling and Wine selection was superb. Our female server was OUTSTANDING, I'm only sorry i cannot recall the young ladies name! We will be back.

The staff, the room (Garden Suite), the food and the peaceful surroundings could not have been more perfect for our first few nights in Northern Ireland.
